Programme specification:

The programme will give students a grounding in a philosophical and theoretical approach to cultural studies, and it will engage them in an in depth study of major paradigms of cultural analysis, which focus on the themes of commodification, language, and subjectivity.

By the end of the course students will have encountered, and engaged in, an analysis of the historical formations of contemporary culture and the idea of cultural studies itself as a reflexive critical response to modernity in its long history.

Key issues of modernity and postmodernity, the postcolonial, subjectivity and sexuality, as well as the innovative study of both visual and acoustical culture, music, voice, cinema and popular cultures are integrated into both theoretical and substantive studies, with a broad view of the cultural objects relevant to such analyses.
